Rhodes. The Sanctuary of Gods
Rumor has it that the exceptional beauty of the Greek island of Rhodes once drew the attention of Helios, the Greek god of the Sun, who claimed it as his sanctuary. He named the lovely piece of land after his beloved wife—beautiful Rhoda.
The place has always attracted travelers from all over the Globe. Blazing sunshine greets those who step on this land—a gift from the Sun god who claimed the island. The sunrays never cease dancing on the sea waves, myriads of shining sparkles reflecting on the sea surface. That, combined with the slight fragrance of the exotic flowers covering the island, is what makes Rhodes one of the most coveted places of resort. No words are able to describe the sheer splendor of its beauty, one should just see it with their own eyes, get in touch with the very spirit of Rhodes—that of magic, hospitality and acceptance—to understand the powerful appeal of the island.
No matter the season, one can always find a suitable entertainment here. Who can resist the temptation of lying under the sun that shines brightly in the sky above or that of swimming in the warm sea? As for the hotel service, you will definitely find it a real cherry on the top, since it can meet even the most exacting requirements.
There are a lot of places of interest on Rhodes. For example, the famous port of Mandraki where, according to the legend, the Colossus of Rhodes once stood. It was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World back then. Though there are a lot of objects of architectural value scattered across the whole island that one can visit as part of an excursion group, it is the Butterfly Valley that really steals one’s breath. It is something completely out of this plain. Millions of butterflies, most of them rare or non-existent in other parts of the world, invade the Valley, drawn to the numerous springs with chilly water or the vanilla aroma of the styrax trees blossoms. Just a whisper of air is enough to send the whole mass of butterflies flying, transforming the Valley into a place straight out of the tales—the sanctuary of gods and nymphs.
